How Major Is Your Major?

The Major Experience (TME) is a University of Connecticut program designed to help students explore majors in a holistic and intentional manner. By offering peer connections through TME Student Mentors, personal guidance from Academic Advisors and Career Counselors, and access to an assortment of valuable tools, TME empowers students to be deliberate and purposeful in their journey.

The Presentation

We believe that every student should be exploratory when it comes to majors. Whether they're anxiously undecided or comfortably declared, everyone can benefit from taking the time to examine their options. However, most students simply aren't prepared to explore. Preconceived assumptions and myths about majors prevent them from being able to take full advantage of the process. This presentation will focus on elevating the student approach to major exploration by acknowledging and correcting these misconceptions and demonstrating that choosing a major isn’t quite so major.

This presentation focuses on two key points:

  1. Addressing and dispelling common myths and fallacies associated with choosing majors/careers.
  2. Providing students with the appropriate tools and resources to effectively explore majors.
